S60 Earns top spot in IIHS crash test


Volvo S60 Tops IIHS Front Overlap Test



Volvo Car Corporation's leadership in car safety is once again highlighted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In the latest report the Volvo S60 is one out of the two cars that earn the best rating in IIHS's new small offset frontal crash test.


In the new test, 25 percent of the car's front end on the driver side strikes a rigid barrier at 64 km/h) The test is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a car collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or utility pole.

"The relatively small overlap is a very severe crash situation and we are very pleased with the test result. Our aim is to build cars that help protect the occupants in most crash situations that occur in real-life traffic. This test confirms that our safety systems work as intended also when a small part of the front is involved in the collision," says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo Car Corporation.
